Blackbird SAL

Its time for the next section in our Blackbird SAL! I didn't get started with most everyone else on August 1st, due to the fact that I was still waiting for my GAST and WDW threads to arrive and being the centre-starter than I am, the house was the first section for me. Luckily when Carrie and JF came on August 5th, the mail had arrived and they had brought it with them.

So here it is, looking rather sad and lonely, my little house! I think the next section will be the upper left hand corner.

I treated myself to a quilting magazine while I was away - American Patchwork & Quilting - and I was amazed to discover an article on the Blackbird Designs ladies in the magazine! And the pattern for a fantastic looking quilt by them also!! I'm going to have to make this one this fall - I love it! And it gives me an excuse for some fabric shopping.
